Ashworth launches sustainable range
Ashworth, a national distributor for the mechanical-services industry, stocks a comprehensive range of renewable-energy solutions. They are featured in a brochure, which also includes coverage of key issues and schemes to be aware of — including the Feed-in Tariff, Renewable Heat Incentive and Microgeneration Certification Scheme.
The company also offers customers access to its Greenworks Training Academy in Birmingham, where they can gain hands-on knowledge of sustainable-product solutions and renewable technologies. This facility is the result of large-scale investment by Ashworth and its sister brands and demonstrates the company’s commitment to providing high-quality technical support and product training.
Demonstrations areas include room sets for wet and dry work, a training set for commissioning solar thermal and solar PV systems, an elevated drainage pit and rainwater-harvesting systems.
The product offering includes solar PV modules, biomass boilers, ground-source heat pumps, air-source heat pumps, underfloor heating, sunlight tunnels, rainwater-harvesting systems and solutions for recycling grey water.
Paul Willcocks, marketing manager, says, ‘The way the commercial market thinks about energy use has changed forever. The Government and investors are increasingly pressurising businesses to behave more responsibly in terms of the environment, which means heating and hot-water systems need to be cleaner and more efficient, with a far greater emphasis on sustainable and renewable energy.’
